Trichome Viewing Sesh: Macro Photos

The legalization of cannabis in many areas of the country has resulted in a variety of novel social gatherings and activities involving the kind herb. One such event that has emerged in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Denver is a trichome viewing sesh. I was recently invited to such an event in Los Angeles.

A quality high-powered microscope allows one to get a miraculous view of the small, mushroom-shaped resin glands called trichomes that produce all of the cannabinoids and terpenes found in cannabis. In short, trichomes are the medicine factories of the cannabis plant.

Enjoy a few ultra-macro shots from the trichome viewing sesh conducted on January 22, 2018 by Kristen Yoder with cannabis samples provided by California’s Duke of Dank Delivery.

And if you’re curious about the molecules that populate those shimmering trichomes, check out my collection of terpene articles.
